Construction Updates

Two new buildings are expected to be completed in time for the start of the 2015-2016 academic year!

The Neuroscience Engineering Collaboration (NEC) Building is taking shape behind the Student Union and Russ Engineering Center. This new addition to campus will allow students to perform neuroscience research to gain a better understanding of brain functions and disorders.

The Classroom Building, rising up near University Hall, will house the Student Academic Success Center, University College Academic Advising, and new interactive classrooms. Everything that students need to succeed will be conveniently located in one building.
